4 Vols. The Great Famine. Incredibly important primary source material for Irish history. It contains the Report into the state of the law and practice in respect to the occupation of land in Ireland, as well as the evidence taken by the committee, and appendix and an index. A phenomenally comprehensive look at Irish society at the beginning of the famine, both from the point of the view of administrators, and the people on the ground. Maroon library cloth with leather labels. Ex-libris, but in very good condition.

Hardcover. 'To which is added, an adventure in the Champs Elises, near Paris; also an interesting account of the unfortunate disaster which befel Monsieur Pilatre de Rozier at Boulogne; with a translation of the elegant eulogium upon him, by the Marquis de Maisonfort: With abstracts from the registers of the Parliament of Paris; Containing a year's list of Criminals Sentenced at Paris; With the nature of their crimes and punishments; translated from his French." Original calf, at sometime well re-backed. Red block label, gilt cross bands. Edges a little rubbed, else a very nice copy. Minor stain to top outer margin of first few leaves, small library stamp to f.e.p. Pilatre de Rozier was the first human to ascend in a balloon, a feat he accomplished in 1783. In 1785 he determined to cross the channel from Boulogne to England in a balloon built and owned by Romaine, who was his companion. In June he deemed conditions to be right for the ascent and crossing, but many thought the place of departure inappropriate. The balloon ascended and stayed aloft for about half an hour before it caught fire, blew up and fell to earth. The description of the state of the two bodies is somewhat gruesome. Extremely scarce, as few as two recorded copies in Ireland and Britain

Hardback. The Great Famine.An Gorta Mor. 19th Century Ireland. Poor Laws. Incredibly important primary source material for Irish history. These parliamentary papers, in 3 volumes, deal with the Poor Laws for Ireland. The first two volumes contain the 14 reports from the select committee on the Poor Laws, together with the minutes of evidence, as well as appendices and indexes. The thrid volume contains the 6 reports from the select committee of the House of Lords appointed to inquire into the operation of the Irish poor law, and the expediency of making any amendment in its enactments, together with minutes of evidence, appendices, and an index. Crucial to understanding the Great Famine, these volumes illustrate contemporary British political though relative to Ireland, as well as highlighting the extraordinary suffering the people of this island went through during the period.
